DIA and U.S. Forest Service coordinated a one day field trip over to Admiralty Cove. Elders shared with the students the history of this place and showed us how this place was occupied by the Tlingit ancestors of the Aak & Taaku Kwaan. Admiralty Cove is a place rich with many food resources that the Tlingit people thrived on. It is a habitat full of deer, fish, berries and seal that made this place a perfect area to set up fish camps and villages.
